Laceration.: Well, you definitely need a tetanus shot. Outside of that, if it's been less than six hours at this point, stitches may be beneficial for healing and ultimate cosmetic result.

Bf had a nail infectionHe was given terbinafine250mg a day 4 1mthNow his arm is swollen. Any correlation? Cephalexin for swelling500mg3/day 4 10 days
No: Terbinafine itself could not cause swelling or skin infection. The cephalexin is an antibiotic which is used to treat bacterial skin infections.

Sometimes very bad fungal infections can leave breaks in the skin - this can allow bacteria to get inside and cause infection ...Read more
Got stuck in the fore arm with a rusty nail, last tetanus shot 5-6 yrs ago, arm hurts /swollan/redish around cut. Can I wait till morning to see how i?

If this is not the case then waiting a few hours to start treatment is OK. ...Read more
